Alabama (Albaamo innaaɬiilka)

Alabama is an Eastern Muskogean language spoken by about 370 members of the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas (Albaamaha-Kosaatihaha) on the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation near Livingstone in the southeast of Texas in the southern USA. It used to be spoken in the Alabama-Quassarte Tribal Town of Oklahoma as well. It is most closely related to Koasati, and distantly related to Hitchiti, Chickasaw and Choctaw.

Alabama is spoken particularly by people over 50 years old, and by some younger people. Efforts are being made to revitalize the language, and there is some written material in Alabama, including a dictionary and grammar.
